Hello there! Remember how we talked about Easter being the un-official kickoff to the brunch season? Well I figured that its arrival needed to be commemorated with a fun brunch t-shirt! Does anyone else live by this motto? 😉 Another favorite is Brunch so Hard (check out my chalkboard vinyl with this phrase on the Cricut blog).
I’ve been on a big kick of using my Cricut Maker with fabric for iron on designs, but you guys! I’m OB.SESSED with the new Cricut Patterned Iron On! There are 9 sampler packs with 3 designs that are 12″ x 17″ each (the designs are perfect for mixing!) The designs are truly like art. Stay tuned for many more home decor, clothing and tote projects using these beauties and my Cricut Maker machine.

1. Open the But First, Brunch cut file in Cricut Design Space. Adjust the size as necessary to fit your t-shirt.
2. Make it! Remember to mirror your image for iron on. With the Cricut Maker you select your cutting materials from right within Design Space. Select Cricut Patterned Iron On from the More Materials option. You can move your design around on the edit mat to get the exact section of the Cricut Patterned Iron On you want for your shirt.
3. Place the patterned side down on a standard grip cutting mat and cut.
4. Peel away the material from the negative space around the design and weed material inside of letters. Weeding the patterned iron material on was the easiest weeding job ever, by the way.
5. Ensure that the t-shirt is free of wrinkles. Lay it on the EasyPress Mat (yep, it’s new and fabulous!) and position the design on the t-shirt to see where you want to iron it on.
*Tip: place a piece of masking tape on the top of the iron on liner once you have the design in the position you want, then you can simply flip the design up to preheat the area and not lose the exact spot that you had selected.
Preheat the t-shirt for 5 – 10 seconds with an EasyPress or iron. Reposition design.
Set the EasyPress temperature to 340º F and press for 50 seconds. (If you’re using an iron, set the iron to the Cotton setting and press for 50 seconds). Flip the t-shirt over and press for 15 more seconds on the back of the shirt with firm pressure. Allow to cool completely before peeling away liner.
Now you are set to rock your But First, Brunch tee to brunch next weekend!
Make sure to take a peak at all of the new Cricut Patterned Iron On designs. I’d love to hear which ones you want to try out first! I’m dreaming up some outdoor throw pillows using the Nature Walk Sampler.
